A few web sites I've ordered from for many years have been getting annoyingly buggy, to the point where I've had to resort to phone or chat to get the order through. Issues have included not accepting the security code on a credit card, changing the order or price when it shows in the cart, suddenly disappearing the payment page... Etc. Some of this is (I think) just recent silly software changes (maybe). When I ask what the problem is, customer service rep asks what browser I use; when I say Firefox, they indicate they're optimized for/more familiar with Edge or Chrome. Is this something other users are running into? Can't believe it's just me.....Guessing you might be able to get some hints from what's below?

Thanks......

4 3 24 Hello Novice here so apologies if confused. For years have been able to use NATIONAL EXPRESS COACH UK SITE to book travel, last successful use was 19.10.2023 but 9.2.2024 site would not allow me to enter my account nor clicking 'forgotten password' option failed. Seaching via FIREFOX/GOOGLE for ACCOUNT LOG IN does not load any pages, just this https://book.nationalexpress.com/my-account/#/profile/view or https://book.nationalexpress.com/my-account/ if the above pasted page 'headers' help. NATIONAL EXPRESS COACH UK SITE allows booking pages to load but refuses to allow anything related to Customer Account, where one would not have to pay booking fees. Their latest reply is below: 'With regard to the password reset function, from the home page, after clicking you wish to sign in, followed by selecting Existing Customer, when pressing Forgotten Password a new web page should load. In order to isolate this process, one method would be to use the Incognito private function of the web browser. It may be called InPrivate, Private or similar depending on the browser, Chrome, Bing, Safari, Firefox etc. If you can go through the National Express logging in procedure, this should work. Also, could you ensure your web browser is running the most current version too. 'Another option you could try is to use a different web browser to see if that alleviates the problem." Using FIREFOX PRIVATE does not solve the problem, my system shows MOZILLA FIREFOX FOR LINUX MINT mint-001 -1.0 is what the last MINT UPDATE has provided, so presume the most recent version, so the only remaining change would be to install CHROME but why would FIREFOX suddenly fail to show such pages related to the COACH ACCOUNT LOG-IN in Feb 2024 when Oct 2023, no problems occurred? Have never had CHROME installed, as used FIREFOX since 2011. Anyone else experienced this problem OR could advise on the matters. Thanks in advance.

Hello! Can you help me sort out a little problem? I am reaching out to seek assistance with a specific issue I am encountering in the Firefox browser.

In my previous browser, when opening new tabs, they were considered active even if I did not immediately switch to them. This behavior allowed me to open multiple tabs, for example, by using the mouse wheel to open several videos from the main YouTube page. Subsequently, when closing the main page, the videos would be available in the order they were opened, facilitating a seamless viewing experience.

Upon transitioning to Firefox, I have attempted to configure the browser to replicate this behavior using the Sidebery extension. However, even with the extension, new tabs are not recognized as active unless I explicitly switch to them, making it challenging to maintain the desired tab activation order.

I have explored various settings and experimented with the Sidebery extension but have not been successful in achieving the desired result. In contrast, the Yandex browser, with the "Switch to the previous active tab when closing a tab" option enabled, behaves in the manner I am accustomed to.

Could you please provide guidance on how I can configure Firefox to consider new tabs active immediately upon opening, regardless of whether I switch to them immediately?

I added pictures to make it clearer what I'm talking about.

Thank you for your time and assistance.

Over the past day or two, I've seen firefox incorrectly render fonts on a couple of websites. So far, I've only noticed two websites effected: quotientapp.com and xero.com (not the actual landing page, but rather the login page and other pages available after login https://login.xero.com/identity/user/login). This problem may extend deeper but these are the only places I've found them.

At first I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me but nope, something definitely not right. No new addons have been installed on my system. I've also deleted all local storage / cookies (via the Inspector) for these sites thinking it must be some caching issue - but no, it's still doing it.

Inspecting the font-family shows the issue (this is from the page https://go.quotientapp.com/sign-in) - have attached the images below of what I see.

I do use uBlock, but it is disengaged on Quotient and Xero (these are work related sites, they show no ads). Other add-ons I have installed include Bitwarden, Dark Reader, Firefox Multi-Account Containers and Reddit enhancement suite. I've ensured all add-ons are up to date as of this posting.

FWIW I do allow all the extensions above (with the exception of Firefox Containers which I don't allow) in private mode.

Any insights on how to get to the bottom of this?

You will see the asian words. When I change the pull dawn tab ("Saudi Arabia") to "USA", the asian lettering does not convert to English.

Not sure how to fix this.

I am not able to find an option to disable it once and for all - and I am not able to set it up as my default browser (professional reasons).

Firefox preventing Win10 going into sleep mode

Hi I read these articles and they doesnt help to resolve the problem https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1349609 https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1206172 https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/ip88y7/firefox_is_preventing_windows_10_from/?rdt=53488

Problem: I have Win10. Firefox 107. I have noticed that if I have opened only regular/textual web pages in my tabs like news/articles then PC goes to sleep after specified time of inactivity. But if I open in the one tab some media content like videoclip/animation/movies and put media content on pause then PC doesnt go to sleep after specified time. PC goes to sleep only by manual command (Start>Sleep). Even If I close the tab with media content PC doesnt go to sleep after specified time. I should or totally close the browser with all opened tabs or manually select Start>Sleep.

Could you help to resolve this issue ?

On the screenshots are shown that some of firefox processes couldn't stop making some activity, every second they make some web request or disk operation. May be this is reason why PC cant go to sleep. But again, this is happen only or some media content is put on pause or some tab with media content has been closed.

With increasing frustration, I'm am trying top retain certain cookies when deleting other cookies and history. Instructions I read say use "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox closes" with exceptions noted, and do not toggle "clear history when Firefox closes."
